    Hunting birds?

    I don't know if anyone does it but who here has tryed hunting/shooting birds on the wing or sitting in trees? I've shot crows and feral pigeons out of trees or on the ground,but not yet on the wing. Anyone here intentionally hunt birds?

    There's a few videos on YouTube I've see with people hunting ducks, and doves with recurves. They use "snaro" arrowheads, I think they're called. They have 4 loops of what look steel wire, making a large impact area for birds on the move.

    I think all birds are off limits to bowhunting, except magpie geese in N.T

    Not in Qld, ducks are off limits for guns and pretty sure you can't shoot crows without a permit but gun only. Not sure about if it's feral but I've often thought about asking my mate if he would consider letting a few turkeys go in a couple of his protected paddocks away from the road. There's a great Youtube vid of some fellas in a bayou shooting ducks it's very cool.

    cheers
